Chase Massner, a U.S. Army veteran who served a year in Iraq as a military police officer, was reported missing last Friday when he failed to return to his friend's home on Farmbrook Lane, located off of Hawkins Store Road. According to family and friends, Massner was having a disagreement with his wife and on Wednesday, went to stay the night with a friend. He walked out of the Kennesaw home on Thursday and has yet to return.
Massner lives in Canton with his wife and two children. Cherokee County originally handled the case, but it was transferred over to Cobb County Police shortly after.
“It started with Cherokee; they’d already written up a detailed report, interviewed people and discovered that he left on his own accord, and there was no sign of foul play. He’s an adult, and witnesses saw him walking away from the friend’s house of his own accord, so there’s nothing really we can follow. There’s no active search at this point.We did file a report after we realized the case was ours, but we have no active leads to follow up on, and no reason to suspect foul play," said Officer Mike Bowman of the Cobb police.
However, since the time he left, there has been no record of cell phone activity or bank transactions. Additionally, family and friends state that simply walking away with no contact is completely out of Massner's character. According to family friend, Scott Rabideau, the dispute between Massner and his wife wasn't severe enough for anyone to be concerned.
Massner, a white male, stands 6-foot-2 inches tall, with short brown hair and brown eyes. He has several tattoos, including his last name across his upper back, and a treasure chest, along with an angel on his arms. He also has two rose tattoos on his right chest area.
An open Facebook group, "Missing Chase Massner," was created a few days ago. More than 2,000 members have joined the group.
